  • Meet Lucy McHale, the Rosa Parks of Middle School (Girl, 14, stands up to gay bullies!)

    Lucy McHale, now 14, worked at the snack bar at the local pool in Olney, Maryland. One day a boy from her school leaned over the counter and told one of Lucy’s co-workers to kiss him. In today’s #MeToo environment this would be a clear violation, except the person he wanted to kiss was another boy. Because the boy demanding a kiss was supposedly gay, and because Lucy stepped in to defend her co-worker, she became the devil in the story, and the target of harassment at Rosa Parks Middle School. Sometime later, Lucy was sitting with two of her...

    Legal matters relating to the LGBT community have always been controversial; even so, LGBT advocates are increasingly attacking not just outspoken anti-LGBT advocates but even mainstream conservative organizations that happen to disagree with the view that homosexual marriage is on par with heterosexual relationships. In a move that is sure to alarm many in the legal community, the LGBT Bar Association has started an official petition asking members of the legal community not to cooperate with conservative legal groups that defend traditional marriage, including the Alliance Defending Freedom and Liberty Counsel. These two particular groups were likely named not just...
  • Media figures lament toxic Twitter (Liberal Trolls Lament Being Trolled)

    High-profile journalists are saying they might leave Twitter after tweets attacking them and family members. The latest controversy is underscoring how the popular social media platform has become toxic in the current political climate. CNN reporter and commentator Chris Cillizza tweeted on Sunday that he was “about done” with Twitter, after tweets mocking his child’s peanut allergy. “We are talking about a 9 year old. Feel free to hate me. But don’t mock my son’s peanut allergy. Classless and indefensible,” Cillizza wrote. MSNBC Anchor Chuck Todd also offered support to Cillizza and criticized the abuse. “Every time I think Twitter...

    The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists. Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” is subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison. The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after alt-right personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their...

    A message was posted on Rumble’s Facebook account on Wednesday explaining that a part-time employee had been fired for “assaulting another person at a local eatery.” “It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery,” the statement reads. “The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individuals political stance.” “We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for.”
  • Stigma follows 'Furries' despite warm and fuzzy reception in Pittsburgh

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | July 5, 2018 | Diana Nelson Jones
    When the Furries came to Pittsburgh last year for the annual Anthrocon convention, reader Jay Poliziani of Greenfield wrote a letter to the editor stating, “I’m proud to live in a city that makes the members of this convention feel safe and welcome each year.” Indeed, the Furries seem to have found a singular home in Pittsburgh, where they plugged $7.7 million into the local economy last year. They have been convening here since the mid-2000s. But this acceptance is not universal. In fact, as a demographic, Furries are bullied, stigmatized or otherwise discriminated against to such an extent that...

    Educators in ActionWorker Rights June 27, 2018 • 10:23AM Supreme Court Ruling in ‘Janus’ Deals Blow to Working Families By John Rosales The collective voice of American workers was undermined today by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in ​Janus v. American Federation of County, State Municipal Employees. In a 5-to-4 decision, which casts aside decades of precedents and laws, the court has eliminated a public-sector union’s ability to collect “fair share” or “agency” fees from workers who choose not to join as union members but are still protected by union agreements. The ruling undermines the ability of educators to come...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 26 June 2028 | Sarah D. Wire
    The recent public shaming of Trump administration officials in restaurants has triggered an internal debate among Democrats over how far they should go in confronting the president and his policies. The boisterous protests against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Trump advisor Stephen Miller as they dined in different Mexican restaurants, and the ejection of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders by the owner of a Virginia eatery, caused some Democrats to embrace the strategy as an effective way to rally supporters and hold officials responsible. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles), a frequent critic of the administration, gave a...

    Some Democrats are reportedly concerned that public appeals to “absolutely harass” Trump administration officials will come back to hurt them in the polls and benefit Republicans. There have been several recent instances where Trump officials have been publically shamed, including Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who was asked to leave by an owner of a restaurant in Virginia. On Saturday, Florida Attorney General – and ardent Trump supporter – Pam Bondi was confronted by a group of protesters outside the screening of a documentary about Mister Rogers in Tampa....

    A woman from New Zealand is facing backlash after photos of her chin tattoo began making waves earlier this week. Sally Anderson, a life coach, reportedly got the tattoo as an homage to New Zealand's indigenous Maori culture, but some are saying it's offensive on the grounds of cultural appropriation. The tattoo, known as a "moko kauae," has since sparked a debate across the island nation, the BBC reported. The blonde, blue-eyed white woman is reportedly married to a Maori man who has a full facial tattoo, and she claims her body art symbolizes strength after surviving a gang rape...

    PARKLAND, Fla. — My first interaction with Nikolas Cruz happened when I was in seventh grade. I was eating lunch with my friends, most likely discussing One Direction or Ed Sheeran, when I felt a sudden pain in my lower back. The force of the blow knocked the wind out of my 90-pound body; tears stung my eyes. I turned around and saw him, smirking. I had never seen this boy before, but I would never forget his face. His eyes were lit up with a sick, twisted joy as he watched me cry. The apple that he had thrown...

    The Trump administration is being accused of racism for targeting an Obama-era directive compelling schools to ease up on discipline for minority students — even though the policy has made life more difficult for kids, including minorities, stuck in increasingly unruly classrooms. Ask Virginia Walden Ford, who runs a church-based after-school snack program in Little Rock. She was recently surprised when a young, fearful black girl turned up before the end of the school day and admitted she had skipped class. Why? She had been involved in a fight the day before with another girl, but the school had refused...

    The parents of a 12-year-old Mississippi boy say he killed himself last week after being subjected to intense bullying. Andrew Leach of Southaven, Mississippi, was found dead at his family’s home March 6. Leach’s parents believe the sixth-grader had been struggling to come to terms with his sexuality, and killed himself after being bullied by fellow students at Southaven Middle School. “He finally came out with the information at school that he thought he may be bisexual,” Matt Leach told WREG. “I think that really amped up the bullying.” Leach said Southaven Middle School students had threatened his son with...

    A video of a Virginia father's unorthodox punishment for his bullying son has gone viral. Bryan Thornhill shared a Facebook Live video on March 1 showing his 10-year-old son running to school in the rain as punishment after he was kicked off his school bus for three days for bullying another student. In the video, Thornhill says that he "does not tolerate" and "cannot stand" bullying, and refers to the unusual punishment as "old school, simple parenting." The father of two also claims that since his son has been running the mile trek to school every day, his attitude has...

    A lot of attention has been focused on the Parkland shooting victims, out of which have emerged a few gun control activists. That's understandable, and for many, a matter of interest, given the students' firsthand experience with the worst experience anyone can possibly have with a gun. All the same, the sympathy factor started to congeal early when news emerged that these right-on-the-spot activists were just dupes in the hands of professional gun control lobbyists looking to capitalize on a tragedy, well financed and organized even before the bodies of their classmates were cold. It all started to look questionable,...

    Dick's Sporting Goods, one of the largest sports retailers in the U.S., has announced it is immediately ending its sales of assault-style rifles and requiring all customers to be older than 21 to buy a firearm at its stores. Additionally, the company will no longer sell high-capacity magazines. CEO Ed Stack announced the decision ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday, the same day survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are returning to class. Stack said the 19-year-old gunman allegedly behind that massacre, which claimed 17 lives and wounded many more in Parkland, Fla., had actually purchased...
